The Story Of A Little River


Published 1930


FoMoCo silent film circa 1930, about the Rouge River. Includes film of Nankin Mills. The Friends of Nankin Mills wrote that the film features:
"Views of several of Henry Ford's Michigan-based Village Industries along the Rouge River. (The Village Industries concept allowed farmers to work in a small local factory most of the year and also care for their farms.)
Opens with aerial view of the massive Ford Motor Company Rouge River Plant and scenes of streams flowing through pasture land, followed by a map showing the river and Village Industry plants in Nankin, Plymouth, Phoenix, Waterford, and Northville.
Includes Nankin Mills tool and die employees; Plymouth employees with metal working machines; Phoenix employees, including many women, creating small parts; Waterford employees making and inspecting parts; and Northville employees making valves for Ford engines. Closes with views of the activities of a typical farm family."
